Yup! What you say is true.

On second thoughts, I remembered that customizing user options
by the custom feature is the custom of Emacs. So, maybe we can
say in the "Customizable options" info node:
All those emacs-w3m options can be customized by `M-x customize-
option' or `M-x customize-group'. You may put Lisp expressions
directly into ~/.emacs-w3m (or even ~/.emacs) instead as follows:
(setq w3m-home-page "http://emacs-w3m.namazu.org/")
However, please note that some options have a significant value
and won't be defined when ~/.emacs-w3m is loaded by w3m.elc.
The `w3m-search-quick-search-engine-alist' option is a typical
example. See "Adding New Search Engines"...
